When Whitney was 13-years-old, she was taken from her biological parents’ custody. According to sources, she was taken in by the Johnny and Lydia Owens, the parents of Whitney’s friend who died in a car accident. By the time Whitney was 13, the Owens were granted full custody, but it’s unclear if she was ever legally adopted by them.
